non uniform scale in Cura is problematic

Non uniform scale in Cura is problematic the second time you try to change a scale number.

It's been for as long as I've been using Cura, which is several versions. Is this supposed to be a feature instead? I don't get it.

    Still having issues with this in the latest version: https://webm.red/0fA4

     

    It seems to stem from how Cura only transforms along the world axes, which does not work well with things that have been rotated. This becomes especially problematic when trying to adjust a support blocker after rotating the parent object. The handles may no longer correspond to the axis being scaled, and often a skew will be introduced.

     

    Is there no option to have the scale/rotation handles orient themselves relative to an object's rotation? If not, is this feature planned at all?

     

    I'm new to 3d printing and Cura is the first slicer I've tried using. I've made several successful prints, but this rotation/scale issue is causing mounting frustration
